Christmas eve in New York

Renee and I spent the day viewing art. This evening we’re staying in to watch for Santa Claus. We ought to be able to see him from her living room windows if we can remain awake that late.

We went to the Museum of Modern Art to see the Seurat drawings, which have been highly praised. After walking through several other exhibits we went to lunch at a little Korean restaurant on 56th St. Yesterday Renee was talking about a place called Soft Tofu, in Fort Lee near my old apartment. It was a cute place with a limited menu: soft tofu in very hot soup with mushrooms, or seafood, or plain, and could be had very spicy, medium spicy or mild. The Korean place on 56th had soft tofu soup, making Renee very happy. I had a soup made with Kim Chee, tofu and some meat. I never thought about cooking Kim Chee. It was good.

We went back to 53rd St. to the Museum of Art and Design, where we saw an interesting exhibit of "extreme embroidery." That’s one of my favorite museums in New York. They almost always have something I enjoy.

We concluded our day walking down to Bergdorf Goodman to look at the windows. I took lots of pictures but can’t post them until I get back to Pittsburgh.

Happy holidays to all.

  1. I really like the extreme embroidery pix, especially the hanging arms with tattoos. That’s where I had one of my “why didn’t I think of that moments!” Made me want to go downstairs and look through my scrap bags to see what I could come up with.

  2. Simply fun. Thanks for introducing me to that museum. Here, Santa has arrived but the family isn’t here yet. I’m taking pictures……in the lovely quiet. 🙂 Enjoy the day. 🙂
